Outdoor journalist Kris Millgate expands to talk radio

TV’s outdoor journalist Kris Millgate is taking on radio in 2012. Wake up with Millgate every Wednesday at 6:35 a.m. on Newstalk 690 & 1260. Idaho's Morning News host Tim Lewis will talk with Millgate about outdoor issues and the upcoming stories she’s working on for her weekly TV news segment Time OUT with Kris Millgate

“It’s important to me to add someone to the show that is qualified to present the outdoors as an expert in a way that is enticing to any of us who want to pick up a fishing rod or hop on a snowmobile,” said Lewis, Newstalk Radio program manager. “It’s a natural thing to have Kris talk about what she’s doing outside and then send people to her website to watch what she’s doing.”

Millgate, owner of Tight Line Media, has 15 years of experience in journalism. She holds honors with Outdoor Writers Association of America for Best Outdoor Ethics and President’s Choice. She also has awards from the Idaho Press Club for 1st place in general news, best documentary and environmental coverage.

She also produces several documentaries annually, and she’ll give radio listeners the inside scoop on what it's like to travel around the country filming wildlife in wild places with wild people.
